Foodies feast on organic, gluten-free edible marijuana treats

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, June, 11th 2017 by THCFinder

Adding cannabis to everything from iced coffee to breath mints, startups are jockeying for a bite of California’s growing marijuana edibles market as the state gears up to allow recreational pot sales.

The industry that barely existed 10 years ago — apart from a few bakers making pot brownies in their home kitchens — now shows no sign of slowing down.

“There’s a brand boom going on right now, particularly in preparation for adult use legalization here,” said Troy Dayton, CEO of The Arcview Group, a research and investment services firm focusing on marijuana businesses. “Not all of them are going to do well, but there’s just so many different types of edibles hitting different market segments.”

Marijuana Legalization Could Hurt These Marijuana Stocks

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, June, 5th 2017 by THCFinder

Support of marijuana legalization is at an all-time high. States across the country have legalized marijuana, either for medical use, recreational use, or both. You might think that every marijuana stock would benefit from these trends. But that's not the case.

One company with a cannabinoid product actually opposes marijuana legalization. Insys Therapeutics (NASDAQ: INSY) doesn't want more states to legalize weed and has urged the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in the past to not lower the bar for some marijuana laws. Here's how marijuana legalization could hurt Insys' fortunes -- and perhaps those of other biotechs with cannabinoid products, especially GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH).

Edibles are gobbling up California’s marijuana market

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, May, 31st 2017 by THCFinder

Adding cannabis to everything from iced coffee to breath mints, local startups are jockeying for a bite of California’s growing marijuana edibles market as the state gears up to allow recreational pot sales.

The industry that barely existed 10 years ago — apart from a few bakers making pot brownies in their home kitchens — now shows no sign of slowing down.

“There’s a brand boom going on right now, particularly in preparation for adult use legalization here,” said Troy Dayton, CEO of The Arcview Group, a research and investment services firm focusing on marijuana businesses. “Not all of them are going to do well, but there’s just so many different types of edibles hitting different market segments.”

Nico’s Nuggets: How to Grow a Plant In Your Backyard

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, May, 29th 2017 by THCFinder

Hi, Nico!
I just started growing. I came across some seeds and put them in a flowering pot with soil and keep it outside in the sun, and I water it each morning. Is this good enough? Will it grow OK? I’m not trying to grow anything special, just something for myself so I can stop spending so much money on buying it. Any thoughts are appreciated, and thank you for the years a great info! — Brandon via the mailbag at NicosNuggets@hightimes.com

Greetings, Brandon… Thanks for reading HIGH TIMES and for the kind words!

It is certainly that time of year, when the weather is warming and people are thinking about easy yet effective ways to grow some head stash and save a few bucks. Growing outdoors is often a cheaper method than growing inside, as you save money on grow lamps and electricity. But there are some obstacles to overcome outdoor growing as well.

For starters, outdoor growers entering the game this late in the season (May/June) need to consider the length of available “veg” time for their plants before the shortening of daylight hours forces the plants into their flowering phase.

The Conservative Christian Case For Pot Legalization

Category: Culture | Posted on Sun, May, 28th 2017 by THCFinder

Feed the hungry, heal the sick—and free the weed.

There’s a Bible verse for every situation and a teaching of Jesus interpreted to justify just about anything, however tortured. But as Buzzfeed recently reported, more and more conservative Christians in the Deep South—exactly the kind of people in exactly the kind of place where lawmakers and law-enforcement types have relied on popular support for the “morals” of the drug war—are discovering that church and legalization can co-exist. 

More specifically, they’re discovering that if you’re a true Christian—no fallacies here—the only proper course of action is to agitate for legal medical marijuana. And in the Bible Belt, that means using the Bible to do it.

Lydia Decker is a 49-year-old “nondenominational” but nonetheless staunchly conservative Christian living in West Texas, the place where (for some people, anyway) a border wall makes sense. The front lines of the drug war, in other words.

Demand for Marijuana Trumps Ice Cream

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, May, 23rd 2017 by THCFinder

If the United States government would simply allow marijuana to be taxed and regulated in a manner similar to alcohol and tobacco, the population would likely purchase more legal cannabis products than ice cream, according to the 2017 Marijuana Business Factbook.

There is some serious demand for marijuana in the Land of the Free.

Some of the latest data indicates that the need for pot, if you include the underground dealings of the black market, is somewhere around $50 billion. This means there is probably already more people buying weed than ice cream, considering the market for the frozen treat only rakes in a little over $5 billion per year.

To put this situation in perspective, Forbes points out that the sale of legal marijuana alone is blowing away several other lucrative pieces of North American commerce, including national movie ticket sales and snacks, like Doritos and Cheetos.
